Something is different

The smallest change in life right now is probably with my blog…but I don’t think that I can call it “my” blog anymore…with two little words (“I will,” not “I do”) this blog has become “ours,” not just mine. But like I said, the change in this blog is probably the smallest change in my life.
So what hasn’t changed? Lets see here…my love for baseball hasn’t changed despite both the White Sox and Yankees having disappointing finishes. My fish, Buddy, is still alive. My CR-V is still running like a champ. I’m still loving everything about Orangewood. Other things are still the same, but a lot has changed.
I go to bed around 9 o’clock now and get up at around 4:30 or 5. Why, you might ask? Because of my beautiful wife. If she is up, I want to be up. If she’s going to bed, I’m right there with her. I covet every moment with her right now, even if it’s just curled up next to her, sound asleep. I’m even writing this while sitting next to her in bed as she sleeps. I think this is the first time I’m staying up while she is sleeping, but I’m still right by her side.
I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat anymore. What to eat every day is such a task, and I’m glad that I (most of the time) don’t have to worry about coming up with that anymore. On top of that, my lunches are made for me (almost) every day, complete with love note. How great is that? I always brag about it at work cause I think it’s so amazing.
I have a house to do chores around. Wierd. Last week, it was fixing the fence and getting the water softener working. This week, its power washing anything and everything, including the whole exterior of the house. Lovin’ it. Little projects and doing physical chores are great after working in front of a computer for 50 hours a week.
So far these changes are small compared to the huge changes of sharing my life wholly and completely with another person. Suddenly, I feel like I have a teammate, or an ally. That is such a weak analogy though. I suddenly have the deepest and most real relationship that I have never had the joy of sharing with another person (sorry Markus). I have someone who is always around (when not working, which is not often enough right now), who I don’t get sick of. In fact, I miss my wife when I don’t see her, and I get excited everyday on my ride home because I can’t wait to see her again. I am loving this change in my life more than any other change I have ever experienced. It is truly amazing. It is a gift. A very precious gift. A very gracious gift. One I don’t deserve; therefore, one I am so thankful for.

So a toast (raise your glasses please): To the best change in my life. My wife. My best friend. You are beautiful and deep and mysterious and enchanting. I love you with all my heart. I can’t believe I get to spend the rest of my life with you. How did I ever become so blessed?

Here, here.

  1. I’ll raise my glass to that! Hope to see some pics soon.

  2. What my wonderful husband needs to know is that I enjoy taking care of him in any way possible. The greatest part is that I never expected to have someone who takes such great care of me in return. He is the one who is amazing.
